    Well that's a good do. Both Sheff Weds and Rotherham lost today. We need to bag 3 points from the Brentford game tomorrow. I'd settle for 1 point it all adds to the cushion.

    We managed a draw. Bit frustrating considering we were first to score. Still it takes us to 8 points clear of Rotherham who have 3 games in hand. I think we are more or less safe now. Next up is a trip to Norwich on Tuesday night.

    I listened to it on Radio Cumbria and sounded like a poor match

    They missed a penalty at 1-0

    Commentators said two out of form teams but that Southend were dire

    Drew with leaders Cambridge 1-1., which puts us third.
    So I shouldn't be moaning, however, our spine which was collecting the points is all out injured. How that effects the last seven games, who knows?
    One thing I do know is we have to start winning.

    Onwards and upwards. Next game, scunny away next Saturday.

    Rotherham lost so that's good news. We could do with beating Norwich tomorrow night. That's a big ask though cos they are top of the league. Oh well I suppose we could always batter Rotherham on Saturday and that surely would put us well and truly safe. Here's hoping.

    Oh dear what a white wash that was. Norwich 7 Town 0. I had an idea that Norwich would win but not by so many. Oh well just have to batter Rotherscum on Saturday now or we'll be in trouble.

    The big day has arrived. Its the big do or die game for us. Home to Rotherham and if we can beat the buggers then it would nearly guarantee us being safe. But before a ball is kicked I reckon all players will be pausing for a silence to remember HRH Prince Philip. May he rest in eternal peace.

    The first League Cumbrian derby to take place at Holker Street for over 50 years this afternoon

    Between Barrow and Carlisle

    They need the points to avoid relegation

    We need the points to aim for the play offs

    I envisage a fast dirty game ans wouldn’t be surprised if there are some red cards

    Silence will be observed for Prince Philip RIP

    @johnbo you have to bounce back from that drubbing you got last week.

    @Cumberland, I enjoyed my trips to up there, and have had some good results.
    Hopefully, there will be many more derbies.

    We are up the m62, at Scunthorpe, we need a win to restart our promotion push.
    Injuries are taking their toll on us, our spine is missing and expecting a hard game, and a hope and a prayer.

    Yeah we sure do mate. We got some tough matches ahead in the final run in. I think we are gunna be relying on Sheff Weds and Rotherham to slip up. It doesn't help with Rotherham having 3 games in hand.
    Good luck with your match. Hope Tranny win.

    They’ll be hell bent on revenge
